-- and this is almost inevitable, we don't talk religion in this country, we're not comfortable with it, we're a country of tremendous religious diversity and increasingly so, and we don't think it should be in any way used as a test, but what do you think is relevant to the world view of mitt romney in his faith? >> i think there's something sort of fundamental and carefully crafted by mitt's responses to questions about his faith. i think he feels it very deeply, but can't really talk about it. there's sort of a hidden he fee but can't talk about it. he keeps it close and i think it's altered the way he approaches conversations not just about his faith but about many other things people would like to know about it. >> all religions have, if you don't mind it, their weirdnesses, whether it's exorcism in my religion. every religion has different things. it didn't really add up to history. so what is it that he doesn't want to bring out that might be seen as relevant by voters. >> it's not so much as what's seen by voter, but the way i look at the religion with mitt was that i wanted to know what does fa

to tell me what role your religion has played in your own personal views on abortion. please talk about how you came to that decision. talking about how your religion played a part in that. this is such an emotional issue for so many in this country. please talk personally about this if you could. >> i do not see how a person can separate their personal life from their public life and their faith. our faith informs us and everything we do. it informs me of how to make sure people have a chance in life. if you want to ask why i am pro-life, it is not simply because of my catholic faith. that is a factor of course. it is also because of reason and science. i think about 10 and a half years ago, my wife jan and i went to mercy hospital where i was born for our seventh week ultrasound for our firstborn child. we saw the heartbeat. our little baby was in the shape of the been. -- of a bean. to this day, we have nicknamed our firstborn child "bean." i believe life begins at conception. those are the reasons i am pro- life. i understand this is a difficult issue. i respect people who do not ag
that religion plays a very important role in their lives. that is only 3% lower than what it was ten years ago. 68% of them say they believe in god. a number of them say they are studying and looking at religion including the bible. >> that is sort of like a higher power, is that what that is? >> for some of them it reflects a loss of faith in all institutions whether it is wall street, the church, the media and even if you look at what is called the emerging church, a lot of it is labeled in an open way. i still think people are spiritually hungry and i believe that the church will find a way to connect with these folks. >> it saved my life. the unaffiliated make up a quarter of the democratic party. whereas people who are faith based make up a third of the republican party and those are the white evangelicals of which you have had an association. are they growing larger from 8-20%? that is going to help the democratic party? >> well, i would say yes and no. in fact if you look at the republican party primaries in 2012, larry, fully 50.53% of the voters who voted in the primary said they were
to pose a different series of question about abortion and religion. do you think that changed the tone at the end? >> i do and i think that was her attempt to take the thing in a slightly different direction. it was like a one-two punch. she asks them about catholicism and then turns that into an abortion question. which was really revealing and an excellent moment for biden. >> jennifer: i thought so too, and especially since that was the first time in the debate that they were able to address issues welltive to women. does this vice president debate fundamentally change the race? >> no they never do. thing back to 1988 michael dukakis had a bad first debate and lloyd benson mopped the floor with dan quayle and we know how that race turned out. it is a 1-1 kind of tie for obama now. but it is going to change the outcome of the election i would be very surprised. >> jennifer: all right. let's look at act 3. what is the most important thing the president needs to do. >> i would like to see him say a joke or something about his previous performance. i would like him to re

don't believe that it's ever been a belief in religion. this is what i'm going to say that the christian part of barack obama's history made him did not have. another save you some of them. i believe he's christian. i have been to his church and i believe that is what he believes in. as christian and i converted to islam because i felt for women it is more protected because of their traditional role of father and mother in the home with her mother was allowed to be at home and have children with protection of the father. i thought i was a positive situation for me. it takes women off welfare and we don't have that game situation in prison situation that we would have here. but israel, i don't think we should follow their lead because i think the world looks at how americans get along with each other, not how israel gets along with america. israel's approach and the religion is an eye for an eye. they do not follow the christian approach. so when things happen to them in the international war, i feel that followed i for an eye and american doesn't follow that actually t
